The longer you walk with God and sincerely seek to do His will, the more you realize it is a journey intentionally designed (by the Lord) so we learn to put our trust in Him.
I love to read the psalms to be reminded that there is no enemy that God will not deliver us from. In politics, it is easy to feel like David felt when he was being pursued by King Saul: "He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me."
Doesn't it seem like that at times? Wicked judges, corrupt politicians, billionaires using their money to promote evil and destroy America. Karl Rove, Marco Rubio, John McCain, Boehner, McConnell, Obama the Propaganda Prez...blah, blah, blah.
But truly, God wants us to trust Him. Listen to these verses in Psalm 18. David wrote this when he was being chased by King Saul, who was so jealous of David that he hated him and wanted to kill him:
1 I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.
2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
3 I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
Stay true to God no matter what the wicked are doing and He promises us He will deliver us. That includes America. And don't forget to praise Him for all His goodness.
Have a great weekend. And fear not.
